What to do and see on the Amalfi Coast? Suspended between the Tyrrhenian Sea and the Lattari Mountains, the Amalfi Coast is an immense terrace overlooking the sea. This stretch of Campania coast overlooking the Gulf of Salerno is a riot of colors and flavors and is bordered to the west by Positano and to the east by Vietri sul Mare. What is the perfect itinerary to discover the most beautiful villages?
There is no doubt that you will lose your head for the Amalfi Coast. This corner of paradise in Campania should be visited slowly, exploring its villages, beaches and natural places. Since 1997 this wonder of nature has been included among the UNESCO World Heritage Sites.
We have created a guide to the towns, the things to see absolutely in a week, the beaches and itineraries with map and map.
AMALFI COAST, WHAT TO DO AND SEE
The Amalfi Coast extends for a stretch of coast of about 55 km and can be explored along the state road 163, one of the most beautiful panoramic roads in Italy: you will be able to admire valleys, promontories, beaches and coves, terraces of citrus fruits, vines and olive groves. The whole area includes 16 countries that absolutely deserve a visit: each has its own characteristic and each is different from the other: you have no excuses, you have to visit them all.
Starting from Positano, the road continues towards Praiano, Furore, Conca dei marini, Amalfi, Scala, Ravello, Atrani, Minori, Tramonti, Maiori, Cetara, until reaching Vietri sul Mare.
WHICH ARE THE COUNTRIES ON THE AMALFI COAST?
Paths that go from the mountains to the sea, lonely beaches and coves, delightful villas and villages to visit. On the Amalfi Coast you will be spoiled for choice of things to see. In addition to the most famous and well-known centers, the villages far from the tourist attractions, the fishing villages where life flows slowly and where the rhythms are dictated by the sea, are worth a visit. And then there are still the beaches, the caves or the valleys, the terraces and the panoramas to discover while trekking.
Conca dei Marini
Fjord of Furore
Vietri sul Mare
Santo Egidio of Monte Albino
After a must visit to Positano and Amalfi, take the time to visit the small town of Atrani less than a kilometer from Amalfi. The village perched on the rock overlooking the sea is a small fishing village still not very touristy, here you can visit the Grotta di Masaniello and that of the Saints.
